Faculty member Kenneth M. Gold, Professor of Educational Studies and Founding Dean of CSI’s School of Education, will discuss the primary-source research behind his most recent book, The Forgotten Borough (Columbia University Press, 2023). Gold argues that the lack of a subway connection has deeply shaped Staten Island’s history and identity. He chronicles decades of recurrent efforts to build a rail link, using this history to explore the Borough’s fraught relationship with New York City as a whole. 

This event is held in observance of American Archives Month, which is observed nationally during October to celebrate and promote the rich documentary heritage of our nation and the importance of archival and historical records to our lives. This event will take place in the Archives and Special Collections in the Library (Building 1L), Room 216. This event is co-sponsored by the Faculty Center for Professional Development.
